One dimensional SIR plot showing classification of dogs into groups based on CLPDP. The vertical line separates the two groups based on the measured multidimensional characteristic (i.e., CLPDP). A linear discriminant analysis (LDA) value generated for each dog ranks the individual within the group relative to the vertical line. Individual dogs are represented as dots. Group 2B hyperlipidemic Miniature Schnauzers are represented by the dots that are at the bottom of the graph. Their CLPDPs plot them all to the right of the vertical line, with the exception of one dog with mildly increased serum TAG concentration (97% of dogs classified correctly). Group 2A normolipemic Miniature Schnauzers are represented by the dots at the top of the graph are the Miniature Schnauzers. All but 2 of the Group 2A dogs are classified as a separate group to the left of the vertical line (94% of dogs classified correctly).
